Restaurant Week – The Healthy Guide
Published on September 11th, 2013
You’ve seen the billboard trucks all over SD alerting us to the start of restaurant week! We love eating out and found restaurant week packed with great restaurants. We went through the list of 140+ participants and picked a few that really stuck out to us from all over the San Diego area. Pick one that is close to you and walk or pick on in a different area and explore a new neighborhood!
They all have different courses to pick from with many wonderful selections. We picked off their course menus based on what we would order if we ate there. You can view the full restaurant week menu on the link provided under each section.
